Davis Path – Chestnut Knob Shelter

Last night at least two of the ladies snored and loudly. I had to get my ear plugs out. We hit the trail around 8:10 AM and got done at 5:40 PM.
Today was a super hard day. It doesn’t help all I have is Ramen and other junk from the truck stop I bought at. There were a lot of climbs but some real nice pasture walking. Right now Im on top of a grassy knob. We walked through about two miles on fields on the way up here. In front of me I have a beautiful view of the farm land below. My feet hurt as usual today. I saw a bull frog, snake, groundhog, and I just saw three turkeys.
Tomorrow we are only doing 15 miles and we’re camping too. I think Virginia has proved to be very nice so far. I love looking down on the valleys with the farms. I was really hating life coming up here but the view is worth it. I believe this to be our last 4,000 footer until New England.
Tonight I’m with Stubster, Bandit, Smokie, Coozers and Agatha.
Scatman 2011- I had lunch the day before on the way out of town at a Dairy Queen. What a terrible meal. That night was worse. I thought I had hit the lottery, three ladies and me in the shelter. Two of the three ladies snored so badly. It was unbelievable. I was happy to be with a new crew this night.
I still can’t believe how bad Stubster’s feet were. His blisters were terrible.
Get out there!
